West London Projects

Previously Exhibited


On ill Winds And Loss of Sanity

The first inspection of the work of Simon Dybbroe Møller presents a casualness of material and arrangement. Deeper scrutiny is rewarded with trails of evidence leading to open historical narratives. For his show at westlondonprojects Simon Dybbroe Møller presents works with inductive implications.

DEAD BbAGGAGE, is a collaboration with Jacob Dahl Jürgensen. Large chimes are hand tuned to notes corresponding to the letters of the artworks title. Taking as their point of departure Bruce Nauman’s musical/linguistic work Violin tuned D.E.A.D. the artists replace the torturous drones of the original with tonal pleasure and elegant visuality. In the second gallery, Dybbroe Møller presents a video in which two mimes reenact a well-known photograph of four technicians holding a Frank Stella painting. However in this version, there is no painting. The mimes merely suspend ‘the painting’, then put ‘it’ down.

The latest in a continuing series of Dybbroe Møller’s works entitled All Yesterday’s Parties will see its third installment at westlondonprojects. In previous parts, Dybbroe Møller has exhibited a hand painted set of objects (a string of lights in one case and party streamers in another) coloured to correspond to the palette of another artist; one who had once received public recognition, but whose moment of fame has been eclipsed. In this exhibition, there are hand painted gels on some of the gallery’s lights.

Dybbroe Møller has arranged to open the gallery’s windows and doors to ventilate the space. Inspired by literary references to the effect of the wind on human experience, Dybbroe Møller, conducts and aestheticises the wind’s invisible force. Traced through modest elegant objects and interventions, endings, absences and new beginnings emanate from his approach to the visual stuff of history.
